Experiencing Gentle Ayurvedic Yoga Asana

Ayurvedic Yoga, an ancient practice rooted in the holistic principles of Ayurveda, harmonizes the body, mind, and spirit, promoting profound healing and well-being. This unique form of yoga meticulously aligns asanas with Ayurvedic wisdom, considering the individual’s dosha (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) to foster balance and address specific health concerns. For instance, grounding poses soothe Vata’s anxiety, while cooling asanas pacify Pitta’s heat, and dynamic movements invigorate Kapha’s lethargy. Beyond physical postures, Ayurvedic Yoga integrates mindfulness, breath work, and meditation, deepening the connection with nature and enhancing overall health. By tailoring practices to seasonal and daily rhythms, and focusing on the individual’s constitution, Ayurvedic Healing through yoga offers a personalized path to wellness, addressing root causes of imbalance and nurturing holistic harmony.

Warm Words from our Yoga Students

“I love to attend yoga class with great regularity. I am constantly surprised that my body, as I age, has become increasingly flexible and supple. That was never my strength. I’m often caught expressing, out loud, in class ‘I’ve never done this before!’ .

I always feel energized and yet more calm and focused after every practice. And the group class also provides a wonderful community of support. What more could you ask for!”

If you perform Yoga asanas regularly, you will feel more flexible physically and emotionally. Flexibility is the essential difference between the vitality of youth and the lassitude of old age. Here is a yogic expression that we find inspiring: “Infinite flexibility is the secret to immortality.
